If you've developed the reflex of turning down your receipt every time you pop by over to McDonald's for a cheeky Big Mac, you may want to break the habit immediately.
A former employee spills the beans
After making your order at McDonalds, don’t hesitate to ask for your receipt - it could be pretty important to you.
The reason? Simple: if you ask for your receipt, employees may think you could be a mystery shopper, meaning a customer paid by the company to try out the restaurant.After their visit, these mystery shoppers make a report about what they didn’t like so that the restaurant can improve on these weak points for normal customers.
McDonalds employees are therefore more attentive to clients who ask for a receipt (mystery shoppers ask for a receipt so that they can be reimbursed later) and serve them the warmest and freshest sandwiches and fries as possible.
